Recently upgraded from Office 2010 to 2013. All of a sudden (3 days ago) I started getting an error that reads "Word could not re-establish a DDE connection to Microsoft Excel"
I have an excel spreadsheet that contains inventory information and I use Word to access that spreadsheet to print price tages. Have never had an issue until now.
Process is to open the Word document which then gets the source data from Excel. Word is open and Excel is closed. Worked fine and until 3 days ago worked fine in 2013.
Now I get the error unless I open Excel first - just the app, not the source file. When Excel is open all works fine.
Anyone else having an issue?
Also having a "just started" issue in Quickbooks Pro 2013 accessing an Excel 2013 file. Works fine with Excel 2010 but won't work with 2013.
